Meal for People Experiencing Homelessness

May 2020 Shaarei Shamayim Sign-Up

Coordinator for May 16, 2020: Kimberly Wilson (608) 287-6710 and [email protected]

Help us prepare and deliver a nourishing meal for Madison's homeless population on Saturday, May 16, 2020 at The Beacon, 615 E Washington Ave. The meal will be served at noon so please deliver your food by 11:45am. Due to the pandemic, we will not be serving the food! Please DO NOT enter the building. A staff member should meet you outside to get your food. Sari Judge will arrive by 11:30 to help facilitate this process. 

Shaarei Shamayim has offered to support the work that The Beacon (a day shelter) is doing in terms of serving the many needs of our neighbors experiencing homelessness. We need volunteers to help provide  a meal one Saturday every other month. Many things can be made ahead and would make wonderful group projects for friends, families, or havurot. Our community has done this before - please reach out to our well-seasoned volunteers for suggestions and support!

Funds are available to offset the cost of food - simply send receipts to Joy. Kimberly Wilson is coordinating the event ahead of time and Sari Judge is the coordinator the day of the event since Kimberly will not be available then. Food should be dropped off at the site by 11:45 the day of (the Beacon has it's own parking lot) or at Sari's home earlier in the week or by 11am the day of. Please contact Sari (the coordinator of the event) to arrange food drop off in advance. Her address is 2520 Norwood Place, Madison. Her phone/ text # 608-332-3941 and her email address is [email protected]

Large roaster ovens are available for your use if you plan on preparing large amounts of food. Please contact Kimberly ASAP if you need one, or two! She has three available. 

The parking lot and main door for the Beacon is in the back and accessed from East Main Street between Blount and Blair Streets. You may also pull in and unload to a rolling cart that the Beacon provides. 

If you cannot make food and want to make a donation for this event to help defray the cost, click here.

And THANK YOU sooooooo much in advance for helping to make this significant event such a success!!!
